The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accused President Mahama and his brother Ibrahim Mahama of attempting to bribe the NPP’s Northern regional chairman, Daniel Bugri Naabu with cars, and money.
According to the party, Mr. Bugri Naabu was being bribed to resign from the NPP, defame Nana Addo, cause confusion and create disaffection for the flagbearer.
The NPP says Mr. Naabu was offered a brand new V6 Mitsubishi, a brand New V8 Land Cruiser and GHc 3.3 million to destroy Nana Addo “beyond electability.”
At a press conference in Accra, spokesperson of Nana Akufo-Addo, Mustapha Hamid, said on Friday, November 25, 2016, Bugri Naabu was invited to meet President Mahama in a meeting set up by Ibrahim Mahama and one Mohammed Awal after six months of trying.
Mustapha Hamid said “Around the same time, Ibrahim Mahama had tried to convince Bugri with money to leave the NPP to become a chief after Daniel Bugri Naabu’s uncle died, but Bugri refused. According to the President, Bugri should paint Akufo-Addo as a rabid anti-northern person who could never be trusted to advance the people of the north… He was supposed to say that Akufo-Addo was knocking the head of one northerner against the other.”
In his narration Mr. Hamid indicated that their Northern regional Chairman went to the Abbosey Okai branch of the Prudential Bank, and deposited the GHc 500,000 in his account which was handed to him in fresh hard currency. The NDC later fulfilled the promise of the Mitsubishi, which was delivered to the Mr. Naabu on November 2.
Mr. Hamid showed the documentation of the Mitsubishi V6 which indicated the change in ownership and also revealed that the vehicle was imported in August 2016 by a firm called Malin Investments Company Limited.
He noted that the NPP’s checks at the Registrar General’s Department indicated that, the two of the company’s Directors are Hawa Mahama, sister of President Mahama, and Frank Nuhu Alormasor, President Mahama’s personal assistant.
